Thinking about the whole nail polish thing I posted about yesterday, I couldn’t help but ask my greatest knitting resource: Ravelry. Specifically LSG which happens to be my favourite knitting group/forum ever for the sheer hilarity of its members.
(LSG stands for Lazy, Stupid and Godless and if it were a face-to-face knitting group it would probably involve copious amounts of alcohol and many gorgeous hand-knitted garments slung casually around shoulders.)
Anyway. It turns out I am not the only one who matches my nail varnish to my yarn-based projects.
Coleva matches her nail varnish to the yarn she’s spinning at the time.
Which I think you’ll agree is fairly terrific.
Annkari is similarly inclined and even matches the luscious shimmer.
Nagarajas matches hers to her knitting projects and her weaving projects. Multi-talented coordination. There are some very skilled ladies on that forum.
Don’t want to match to your yarn but still want to be utterly, spectacularly stylish? Not a problem. Match with your cute little yarn bowl instead, as SlpBeauty does.
Variegated yarn or colourwork? NOT A PROBLEM! Beth825 has a very classy answer to that conundrum.
There’s also someone who matches her nail varnish to the ink in her fountain pen which is a whole new level of awesome.
(I used all these pictures with permission, by the way. I am not a sneaky nail-picture thief.)
Some people are the opposite. Like Ikchen on Twitter, a very lovely lady who replied:
I tend to not knit when wearing nail polish, mostly because it makes my fingers feel wrong (and thus the knitting).
Please share if this is relevant to you too.
I’m way too amused by this, it seems.
